Lera Lynn Kicks Off Fall Tour Tonight, Rolling Stone Has “Menacing” Live Video 

Watch Live Version Of Resistor Standout “Little Ruby” Here 

September 13, 2016 – Lera Lynn kicks off a month long U.S. tour tonight in Birmingham, AL. Touring in support of her acclaimed album Resistor, released earlier this year, Lynn gives fans a look at what to expect at the upcoming shows with a live version of Resistor standout “Little Ruby” via Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone says of the “Little Ruby” live clip, “dark, deliberate and sexually ambiguous, the song moves forward on the back of [Joshua] Grange's descending guitar line, a recurring riff that's punctuated by one of Resistor's most pop-friendly choruses. Bassist Robby Handley chimes in with vocal harmonies during the refrain, and Tommy Perkinson bangs out a simple pattern on the snare and kickdrum, leaving plenty of room for Lynn's voice – which occupies the middle ground between a croon and a smoky huff – to take the spotlight.”

Listen to Lynn’s interview with NPR Weekend Edition about Resistor here. Listen to a recent WNYC Soundcheck live session here.


You can also watch the striking videos for Resistor standouts “Drive” and "Shape Shifter.”

Here’s what else press are saying about Lynn and Resistor:

“The heat is in lyrics about desire, pain, betrayal and revenge….the cool is in languorous slow tempos, minor chords, ruthlessly laconic arrangements, guitar lines swathed in reverb and a voice that smolders a long time before it flares up.”

-New York Times


“Lynn has a gift for sensory subtlety, and she uses it to get at emotional truths”

-NPR Music

 

“At once spacey and specific…Baritone guitars, keyboards and looped drums fill the background, while Lynn's voice — a natural descendent of Hope Sandoval and Margo Timmins' woozy wails — wafts into the spotlight, singing songs that occupy the outer limits of Americana and indie rock.”

-Rolling Stone

“The Texas native’s delivery…is alternately delicate and menacing, vulnerable and moody.”

-Paste

 

“Filling Lynn’s remarkable compositions with exactly enough sound to create an atmosphere for the songs. In some places, they toy with rhythm, in others they tease out the spaces between notes, and in others still, the emphasis is Lynn’s vocal – so completely unique that I can’t think of a single comparison. “

-No Depression

 

“[Prefers] to push boundaries and create challenging often unsettling music that encourages multiple spins to reveal its substantial pleasures.”

-American Songwriter
